One Cool Thing: Girls in Windows

Ran across this outstanding beautiful image by Ormond Gigli.  The photographer was inspired by the brownstones getting demolished in his neighborhood, and immortalized the building with dozens of women in "their finest attire."  Shouldn't this be recreated some way?  Or has it been?

A Peek of Perfection

My jaw dropped when I saw just a peek of the Salma Hayek wedding that took place in Venice.

Salma wore Balenciaga for the ceremony, and a traditional Venetian mask for the rehearsal event.

Charlize Theron and Lily Cole navigating the water taxi steps.

Anna Wintour and Stella McCartney turned it out.

I was lucky enough to be in Venice during Carnival 2006...maybe I could have slipped in the kitchen door...
